    Chicago Top 3

    Self-described "rock and roll band with horns", Chicago was on most successful rock groups of 70s. They progressed from harder sound to soft rock, and generate memorable hits along the way.

    Ranked from most favorite:

    1. "Stay the Night": from Chicago 17
    2. "If You Leave Me Now": from Chicago X
    3. "Just You 'n' Me": From Chicago VI

    I also appreciate the earlier cuts :

    Beginnings -- Questions 67 & 68 -- 25 or 6 to 4

    Later, Chicago became very good at the ballad department :

    Searchin' So Long -- Hard to Say I'm Sorry -- Hard Habit to Braek
    old Denon
    older Bose
    new Velodyne sub
    new Sony 1080 LCD & BluRay
    Big, clean sound @ 800 watts

    Thanks everybody

    I'm probably the only one, but liked their later albums better than earlier ones as more jazz infusion is evident in first few albums (not a jazz fan)

    But they do have few iconic songs from that peiod which you all mentioned including "25 or 6 to 4", "Beginnings" and "Saturday In the Park".
